How the Media Protects Obama

Another White House flack, Eric Schultz, didn’t like being pressed for answers about the Fast and Furious scandal in which American agents directed guns into the arms of Mexican drug lords. “Goddammit, Sharyl!” he screamed at her. “The Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, The New York Times is reasonable. You’re the only one who’s not reasonable!”

News Anchor Revolts

This explains why my Future Children of Fukushima article and the Chernobyl Horrors page have been the most viewed pages/articles I’ve ever posted. I’ve not met a nuclear apologist yet who could withstand the avalanche of evidence.

“I am a newscaster, but I couldn’t tell the true story on my news program,” says Jun Hori, a former anchor for NHK, the Japanese state broadcaster.

Hori says the network restricted what he and other journalists could say about Fukushima and moved more slowly than foreign media to report on the disaster and how far radiation was spreading. The attitude in the newsroom was not to question official information

Japan has dropped 31 places since 2011 in a World Press Freedom ranking compiled by the group Reporters Without Borders.

Ebola nurse ‘made to feel like criminal’ on return to US

Kaci Hickox was placed in quarantine under a policy announced on Friday by New Jersey governor Chris Christie and New York governor Andrew Cuomo, which requires anyone flying into the states after having contact with Ebola sufferers in west Africa to be subject to mandatory isolation for 21 days

1st development: much-needed quarantine is now in place, but only in two states. That leaves 48 others where the disease can enter much more easily.

2nd development:

Hickox had sharp criticisms of the additional restrictions. She wrote: “This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me.”

Okay, it sucks to be quarantined for 3 weeks. You know what sucks more? Killing a few thousand innocent people because you were allowed to recklessly spread a highly contagious disease. I’m sorry for your inconvenience Ms. Hickox, but you volunteered to expose yourself to the most deadly contagion on the planet. It has already killed numerous doctors and nurses. That has been the main transmission pathway taking it across long distances.

Now I hope the authorities are not mistreating anyone, but the basic fact of quarantining is not cruel or unusual punishment. Quarantined people should be put up in nice accommodations and given access to communications and whatever luxuries make the stay comfortable. But they should not be allowed to risk the public’s safety after dealing directly with ebola patients. There’s no wiggle room here.

She is angry because she isn’t showing symptoms–yet. Well that’s how it works, and she above all should know that. If we are to contain this pandemic we need to take strong actions to prevent new people from becoming infected. Common sense, finally, after reckless incompetence has guided the policy for almost a year.

development 3: The government, Obama in particular, likes to hide behind the empty slogan “science.” The actual science has shown there’s a 12% chance that 21 days is not long enough. That crucial science is missing from pretty much all news coverage so far.

development 4:

US hospitals lack infection prevention personnel and resources to confront Ebola, survey shows

“Only 6 percent of US hospitals are well-prepared to receive a patient with the Ebola virus, according to a survey of infection prevention experts at US hospitals conducted Oct. 10-15.”

teacher-

Wow. We all like to think we’d run toward the danger and be heroic, rather than running away from the sounds of gunshots.

…the teacher intercepted the gunman as he paused, possibly trying to reload.

It was not clear if the student committed suicide or if he accidentally shot himself while in struggling with Silberberger.
